Bogus Creek Cafe & Bakery

Highway 35, Stockholm, WI - (715) 442-5017

We arrived at Bogus Creek at about 11 in the morning and were the only ones there. It must have been the waitress' first day on the job. It took forever to get our beverages: tea, juice and coffee. Once the coffee arrived, it was cold. All this aside, the waitress was pleasant; she just wasn't firing on all cylinders. I'd hate to see what would happen if they were slammed. We were the only ones there and it was a struggle.

I ordered the Bogus hash with sausage and my wife ordered French toast. Any bad feelings from the poor service were offset once the food arrived. The hash was really good: a mixture of peppers, good-tasting sausage, and eggs. They used a light hand with the seasoning so I needed to add a little salt and pepper but, other than that, it was great. The hash browns where really good too, cooked and browned up perfectly without too much grease, oil, or butter.

The real highlight of the meal was my wife's French toast: three slices made up from one and a half croissants (baked in-house) cut longitudinally. I'm not sure how long the croissants where sitting in the egg mixture but the result was amazing. They came out browned on the surface but chewy and gooey in the center, almost like a bread pudding. This French toast was the showstopper without a doubt.

As a side note, when the food came out, I clicked a couple pics with my camera and I must have caught the eye of the owner because she came over almost immediately to ask how things were, if there was anything else we needed, etc.

After brunch we went across the small garden to the bakery. There was a teenage girl working behind the counter by herself and a meager selection of three or four baked goods. I asked if I had "missed the boat" for that day and she said they just don't bake that much in the off-season. We bought a cherry turnover, some macadamia/white chocolate cookies, and some Swedish donuts which seemed like deep-fried croissants covered in cinnamon and sugar. Again, just a small inkling of what they bake when busy and all the more reason to return.

In general, we were both very happy with our trip to The Bogus Creek Cafe and will more than likely return.

Considering this is Stockholm, thin Swedish pancakes with fresh lingonberries seemed like the proper choice.

Fresh-squeezed orange juice in Wisconsin was much appreciated. And when I asked for a glass of water, they brought out a carafe.

Slightly crisp on the outside, feathery inside, and completely blanketed with cinnamon sugar, the Swedish donut is a Bogus Creek Bakery signature dish.

I normally hate eating outside, but this beautiful setting proved to be irresistable.

Never in my life have I had French toast like this.  Very tasty and could easily be served as a dessert.  Browned and chewy on the outside and gooey in the middle.

Cranberry walnut bread usually is pretty heavy. Bogus Creek's is lighter weight, easy to keep on eating.
